media to make your elected officials accountable. there is no reason they ought to be taking recesses when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial crieses, september 11th. just to name some major events. and that debt ceiling debacle did more to disrupt the public's confidence in the integrity of the political process in washington. so you have to make your elected officials accountable. have you social immediate yafment you can build an online community snainsly and you get a message multiplire. by doing that you can find out where your law makers are. are they in session five days a week? they should be working. these are things you can be doing now. these are simple solu
"newsroom." i'm suzanne malveaux. up ahead, cyber attacked on a florida election is raising alarms about security at the voting systems across the country. so this attack involved more than 2,500 phantom requests for absentee ballots during the august primary. our chris lawrence who has been digging into this. chris, what do we know, election officials now being able to detect that something happened, something was wrong. how did they do that? >> basically two things really jumped out at them, suzanne. they looked at two things. one, the fact that all of these requests were coming from what looked like the same computers. also, they were coming in so quickly they figured no human being could enter that much information that quickly. those were two big red flags. then they started to look further and determine that the internet -- the i.p. addresses of these computers were blocked. once investigators were able to dig in and look at them, it turned out that all of these i.p. addresses were going through what's called an anonmiser. in india and the uk sort of a way to wash your tracks on th
and do what we have always done. what we're going to do is change the fact that when he got elected and other people got elected whether it is in austin or the delegation that has been sent to washington they are not representing half of the people for the people and by the people, and they have done a masterful job of gerrymandering the elections. we have to combat that. we have got to compete everywhere, and we have got to make people fight for those votes. so we'll let rick perry continue to talk and we'll go do our job. >> michael: texas hasn't voted for a democratic president since carter in 1976, a democratic senator since benson in '88. how long will it take? >> your point a good one. we -- democrats have lost the last 100-state-wide elections since 1994, 0 to 100. so we know this is a massive challenge, but we also know there is a ton of energy on the ground there volunteers donors supporters across the state who are ready to have their voices heard. so the context is going to depend on a couple of key factors, and some of that is how fast can we get th
in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look at what has happened since gavin newson signed gay marriage in law, he performed the ceremonies himself there and made it legal, look how much things have ink changed in one decade. do you think it

today. and you were the first, as we said, iraq war vet to be elected to congress. when you hear about these casualties today on the ten-year anniversary, what is your reaction? do you believe that it needs to be more part of the discourse there in the beltway? >> without a doubt. it is not part of the discourse because most folks don't have skin in the game. less than 1% of americans have served in iraq or afghanistan. it goes to your point. we should be talking about this. it is the defining political issue of the last ten years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to t
an election in which they think they got shellacked. the republican party lost because it's not conservative. it didn't get the base out. in the 2019 election. >> eric: your thoughts? >> greg: it's hard to take a rebranding suggestion from someone named reince priebus. it sounds like a disorder you get from a shampoo. it's true! the party doesn't need a makeover. they need a makeunder. the party has been victimized by the media who smeared them as uncool. no way to be a republican and be cool. it's associated also to being old. if you look at mccain, most people thought he was a cranky old guy, when he was a war hero who spent five-and-a-half years in a prison camp. most people didn't know that. they saw a cranky guy trying to beat a young black man for the office of the presidency. they need to simplify and say -- who do you want to be? you want to be an individual. you don't want to be part of the government. strive for achievement. how cool is that? that is what you get out to young people today. ref ject government influence. how simple is that? >> eric: is it smart for the g.o.p. and re
that parachutes into communities four months before an election. while that is how we operated years and years, and done well as compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side, the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the relationships were deep. they were authentic. >> he is absolutely right. >> yeah. priebus announced 10 million dollar plan funded by the rnc that would focus on establishing permanent footholds in african-american and asian communities. they would begin their campaign sooner. >> a great idea too. he was talking about a june or july convention. >> right. >> less debates. >> less debates. >> i think it's great. >> for the next presidential election cycle which makes a lot of sense. maybe seven or eight of them instead of 23. to stop the party from cannibalizing itself later on. it's sort of looking like rebranding. >> what is wrong? you don't like that idea? >> i think it will be hard to enforce. >> why is that? >> a lot of media organizations that want to do debates and the party can't stop those organizations from offering to do debates and candidates
, and the republican national committee just out with a report, they are calling it the autopsy of the 2012 election. and they said we would have won if only we did a better job of getting our message out. good to have you with us and we're ready to give you a chance to join the conversation any time. give us a call at 866-55-press or join us on twitter -- actually you ought to do both, but if you want to talk to us on twitter, it's @bpshow, and on facebook, facebook/billpressshow. we are so excited this morning to welcome back to the studio. every once in a while we want to show that we are real people care. we really do care about sports. cindy is in studio again this morning. thanks for coming in. it's an exciting time we're ready to do our brackets this morning. >> i already have torn four of them up. this is one of those years where you are better to wait two minutes before tip-off and just filling it out and sending it in. and spend like two seconds on it. you can overthink this year. that's my theory. >> bill: all right. we're here with our whole team. of course we're coming
winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partner for whom americans feel they have tried so hard to be helpful, how that country can be in fact doing something that makes it more difficult to achieve our common goals? >> reporter: so far however the shiite-dominated malaki government has not closed its airspace to the shiite regime in tehran. follow me on twitter at at james rosen@fnc i will tell you who else from the iraqi government recently got the same message. jon and jenna. jon: james rosen, thank you. we'll have more on secretary kerry's surpris
and this marketing not just in the couple of months leading up to a presidential election but they need it year-round and they needed in places, the chairman says, in places they normally don't go like blue states and urban areas. it's obvious why they're doing this. in november republicans didn't win back the senate or presidency and they had a problem with younger voters, minority voters. $10 million is a lot of money and that's why they hope they can make some changes. >> in the impalgbattle ground s we went to a number of them. they're taking a page out of the obama playbook because the ground games were amazing, they knew people in those and today prebus announced that. what will go beyond voter outreach in this announcement? what else are renting planning, paul? >> when it comes to a couple other areas where republicans really didn't do well compared to the obama campaign and democratic party, digital is one area and they'll put a lot of money and man power into digital to get their message out on social networks. another thing, this is fascinating for people like you and me who follow th
in the couple of months leading up to a presidential election, but they need it year round, and they need it in places, the chairman says, where they normally don't go like blue states and like urban areas. it's kind of obvious why they are doing this. go back to last november. the republicans didn't win back the white house. they didn't win back the senate, and they definitely had a problem with younger voters and with minority voters. mitt romney doing very well at all with either of those groups. that's why you're seeing this, and $10 million is a lot of money, don. that's why they hope they can make some changes here. >> and if you're in the battleground states, i was in a battleground, you were there as well, they are taking a page out of obama playbook because they were -- they had been in those communities. their ground games were amazing. they knew the people in those communities and they had personal relationships and that's how they won and today reince priebus admitted that as he was announcing that they are going to announce his plan come tomorrow. what will -- what will go be

display of republican soul searching, the rnc is set to release an internal review of the 2012 election, what many people are calling an autopsy report. it includes some 200-plus recommendations for reversing gop fortunes in 2016. among the recommendations, reducing the number of primary debates. moving the party's convention from august to july or even june. and to go where the report says the gop has not gone enough. we're talking about outreach, and inclusion. here's what rnc chairman reince priebus is saying about that. >> we're going to be announcing a $10 million initiative just this year which will include hundreds of people, paid, across the country, from coast to coast, in hispanic, african-american, asian communities, talking about our party, talking about our brand, talking about what we believe in. >> at the bottom of the hour, ari fleischer the former bush white house press secretary will join us. he co-chaired this rnc project. he helped write this report. >>> president obama expected to announce his pick for labor secretary today. it's thomas perez, the assistant attorney

all of a sudden. you get re-elected everybody loves each other. you know. absolutely. and i think that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria

for congress to wake up to our responsibility as elected officials and as stewards of this planet. the alarm has been sounded by the scientific community which overwhelmingly, overwhelmingly warns about the effects of our carbon dioxide emissions on our atmosphere and oceans. our defense and intelligence communities warn of the threats posed by climate change to national security and international stability. economists recognize the distortion of energy markets that overlook the true cost of carbon pollution, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address t

and generosity of a victorious president who won the elections, does not have netanyahu threatening him, he can reach out and try to prove to them that he is a real friend and this demonization of him was totally wrong. >> now, according to the polls, and you know better than i whether the polls are accurate reflection, is israelis are suspicious of this president, despite the long-standing ties and generosity on the missile defense system and other security issues, there's a real sense he hasn't shown israel the love. other presidents didn't come in their first term, ronald reagan never came as president, but at the same time they expected him to come, especially after he went to cairo in 2009. can he reach on the floor his head to the israeli people. >> there are three interesting events. king hussein of jordan, almost an enemy, and the friendly bill clinton coming to israel and winning the hearts of israelis instantly, although their positions were very critical of israeli policy, definitely is a d saddat. the trick for president obama now, and i think this is exactly what he's trying to do.

by that is the 2010 electorate that elected republican house of representatives was a much more conservative, a much older in terms of demographically and much whiter electorate than the 2008 or the 2012 electorate. that was the high point of anti-obama backlash. >> tea party. >> the tea party. that produced a house of representatives and it produced state legislats lislature that gerrymanders to lock in a quau si permanent republican majority in the house. in 2012 republicans lost a million more votes in the house than democrats and maintained a fairly significant majority. so what has happened is the moment in which the public was most plausibly behind a program of austerity and cuts and inl posed pain, which is what this is about, has passed. and yet it is carried forward through this kind of trick of the budget control act, the debt ceiling deal, and all these straitjackets that have been put onto the process so that we are now two years later, even though there's not public support for it in any deep sense, it has been repudiated at the ballot box by a fairly significant majority, house, senate
your loins again. remember that hibt that we dropped to the national republican lawmakers on election day, the one that responded to their attempts to man handle our uterus by a resounding defeat. it seems the friends at the state house level have missed the memo. while congressional republicans finally managed to make nice tw the ladies by passing the violence against women act, state lawmakers have been outdoing themselves in acts of policy violence against women's reproductive rights and your yut rous should be very, very afraid. this month there has been such unrelenting on slot of state-level attacks against reproductive choice, some of them bray tantly unconstitutional that it inspired mother jones magazine to create their own anti-choice march madness championship brackets. you would think after beginning the month of march with the state passing the most restrictive abortion ban in the country that things couldn't get much worse, but oh how wrong you would be. arkansas kicked things off on march 6 thd when they did something no state has done before. not content with the 20-we
policy and an election in which voters spoke loudly and clearly, the american people want their elected representatives to stop arguing and reach some solutions. mr. president, i come to the floor today to discuss a budget plan that meets this challenge. the senate budget that passed through the budget committee last week with the strong support of all ten democrats and two independents. it is a responsible and balanced plan that puts the economy first and tackles our deficit and debt responsibly and credibly, and i am hopeful that after it passes the senate, the house of representatives stands ready to compromise as well and we can come together around a balanced and bipartisan deal that the american people expect and deserve. mr. president, the budget debate is too often discussed in terms of abstract numbers and political winners and losers, but the truth is that budgets are about far more than that. they are about our values and our priorities. they are about our visions for how government should be serving its citizens today and for generations to come. and most of all, they are ab

the election that we just had. it was put in front of the people, they said we will have none of it. but the american people do want what's in the back-to-work budget. the -- gallup released a poll that confirms what you and i i already know, that is that the american people want jobs, not austerity. 72%, mr. speaker, of americans said that they support putting people back to work, repairing our nation's infrastructure, including a majority of republicans. now, the fact is that the back-to-work budget is about putting people back to work. as me and the speaker agree, it's not the moment where we need to clamp down on debt, it's the moment we need to put americans back to work. and so, look, which budget meets the test? the progressive caucus budget invests in a level of the american society of civil engineers says is needed to close the infrastructure gap. the republican budget cuts transportation by 20%. mr. speaker, it's time to get back to work and let's pass the back-to-work budget. i yield back. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. for what purpose does the gentlem
by the american people in the election. and since then it continues to be very clear. the american people prefer a balanced and fair approach that puts our economy and our middle class first. not an extreme irresponsible approach. unfortunately, house republicans put forward a budget last week that doubles down on the rejected ideology that the american people spoke about. and they have a new talking point about their same old budget. they now claim their budget would eliminate the deficit in 2023. and house budget committee chairman paul ryan has even said that it doesn't really matter how their budget eliminates the deficit. mr. president, americans across our country who will feel the impact of the choices we make in the coming weeks and months feel that it does matter. so while some of my republican colleagues would probably prefer not to hear about it, i think that the impact of the house republican budget is a crucial part of this debate, and we owe it to the american people to put our opinions on the record. now we've come a long way, mr. president, but there are still far too many americ

. >>brian: was there any backlash of the president talking beyond their elected leader, benjamin netanyahu, right to the people, essentially saying tell him to do the right thing? >> i think probably if there was any backlash, the only argument would be turn around, is fair play. benjamin netanyahu talked to a joint session of congress. this is a version of president obama coming here and saying you want to come to the united states and talk to me and tell the americans what you think about israel, i'm going to speak directly to your people and tell you what i think needs to be done. >>steve: yesterday during our program we showed you a live shot of the president of the united states and president of the palestinian authority. we didn't see when you pulled out, look who's over the president of the united states. yasser arafat, also known as the father of modern terrorism peering down over the president. >>anna: this man, throughout history being responsible for hundreds of hijackings, bombings and assassinations. how on earth 2k-9 president not -- how on earth did the president not realize
the next election. and we've got our eye so far off the ball that we now -- every bill that comes to the floor has to have, essentially, a rules committee of one, which is the majority leader deciding whether or not he wants his members to vote on a bill. that doesn't have anything to connect with the history of the senate. this is no longer the greatest deliberative body in the world, because we don't deliberate, we don't have an open-amendment process. we're too afraid of our own shadows to cast a vote and think we might have to defend it. well, if you can't defend any and every vote in this body, you don't have any business being here. and to stifle debate and to limit amendments in the way that this bill has done certainly won't breed any good will going forward. and certainly doesn't do the due service that american citizens are due. mr. president, i'll now take some time to talk about the various amendments that i've called up. amendment 69 was the physical amendment -- was the first amendment i called up. as the ranking member on homeland security and on the committee on pe
